See the light and remember it
Lighting in photography is a living, changing art. One of the most important abilities of a photographer is to see light and to remember it. Light is the most changing element in our daily life. We move among solid objects and among people who do not change drastically during a day or a week. But visually the appearance of our environment and of people around us may change from one hour to the next due to the time of day, the weather, or the particular source of light. Photographers are aware of these changes and store in their memory the impact different types of light have on our emotions and our subconscious. For a photographer, watching the light becomes second nature.
Some of the photographer's palette of tools:
-The angle of light
-Quality (hard or soft)
Angle of light
Ten Tips for Nature PhotographersThis article came about after a deviant specifically requested that we write ten clear, simple tips for Photographing Nature. Troubleshooting articles and information can be very useful, but sometimes breaking it down into manageable memorable chunks is so much easier. So without further ado please enjoy our Ten Tips for Nature Photographers!Ten Tips for Nature Photographers2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) Get into your environment
Yes, it's rhubarb. To be a true photographer, you must be at one with rhubarb.
When we talk about photographing Nature, we don't necessarily mean wide expansive rolling landscapes. Whilst they contain any number of elements that are nature focused and made up from natural resources - Nature Photography is about getting into your environment and getting up close and personal with these elements. So think of it like you are Photographing the components that make up that beautiful lan

Concept List 2People sometimes ask me how I come up with concepts or where I get my inspiration. My general default answer is simply that inspiration is everywhere. You just have to look around at bit. Whenever inspiration strikes, I try to write down my thoughts in my concept list - it's just a list of ideas, phrases, and general notes saved somewhere on my computer.Concept List 24 years ago in Personal More Like This
So here is the latest concept list. I've done a couple of these (linked) but most of them have yet to be realized. These concepts are now available for you to use for your own artworks. Feel free to come up with alternative interpretations or executions. Just link back to this journal entry so others can join in the fun (In the past, I've held challenges/contests to encourage others to get involved in conceptual photography but I'm a bit busy with work right now to organize anything so you're on your own )

The Concept List Challenge
Some of you have noted that I often mention my concept list in the Artists Comments of deviations. Yes, there is an actual list. And yes, I have been essentially going down that list and doing every concept that I can. However, I get distracted easily either by new concepts or butterflies so Im still not even close to finishing this list. And as I figure, I probably will not finish conceptualizing all these ideas unless I get a little help
So now, here is the challenge for you:
Pick any of the concepts listed below and conceptualize it in any way you want in any medium you choose (photography is preferred but all mediums are accepted)

Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to MoneyJust some quick tips~Won't Receive Points? And Convert Points to Money1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I often see people saying the commission widget won't work
or saying they didn't receive and lost the points when taking commissions using it.
This is most likely NOT a bug!
When using the commission widget, the points you earn will be showing
in your earning page instead https://www.deviantart.com/account/earnings/
Hint: This is also where you are able to convert
your points to money if you have Paypal ;>
I have seen people having this problem countless of times,
so I thought I could write a quick journal and hopefully it can
help the few people who had this little problem

To all the broken and sad people out thereYou are beautiful and please don't EVER think you aren't whether you are male or female or inbetween every single person is beautiful and the only thing that will ever make you think otherwise is society.To all the broken and sad people out there1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's hard to look at my friends who tell me that someone else or something in society makes them feel and think that they are ugly, worthless, and not good enough. Absolutely no person should EVER tell you that you aren't good enough or to kill yourself or anything else that can break you down. Even if you say it jokingly it's NOT okay and you shouldn't even be joking about that because people are fragile some more then others. Words hurt one way or another and it's sadly something we cannot stop or control but only you are in control of what you say or do and I honestly suggest if you're upset at someone for whatever reason just drop it and don't even try to chase after them or get revenge because it is REALLY worth it? Be the bigger person and just let it go and ignore them as best

So I might do weekly journals, but I finally put into words everything that I wanna share with you to living and leading a successfull and happy life!
Popularity, money and clothes and materials and possessions should never define your life. How about growth, the little things and realizing how beautiful life is/ and the experiences/memories!
When you learn to be grateful and work hard in your life and make things happen AND TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR OWN LIFE, not only will you have more opportunities, lasting friendships and become more happy but you will learn to love your life. I do..and I wish that all my friends and people I love could feel this way. and if there are obstacles? you can be the strong hero/heroine
THAT IS ALL, LOVELIES <3

When I came on dA, I never wanted to be popular/known.
All I wanted/want is to improve my skill, anatomy, etc.
Which has taken place so far.
I mean, look at my first drawing since I came to dA.
Look at all the anatomy I needed practice on.
Look at me now.
I've come a long way.
I still need work, but I improved a lot.
As I said, I mainly came on here to improve,
to be inspired by other artists,
but I realized that being too inspired can be a bad thing.
Yes, I used to be a theif.
Style and design theif.
But look at me now. I have grown, I matured. I saw the wrong of my ways and changed.
Is redlines and critiques/tips too much to ask?
I am 13 years old.
I will improve.
I am still young.
You can't expect me to wave a magic wand have perfect anatomy and shading.
I've bonded to Fuchsia, I don't see her changing much.
However my style changes in every picture? Yeah, because maybe I'm experimenting with styles?
Hate is the last thing I need right now.
